Title: Real time MR/PET imaging of the of pulmonary embolism using a porcine model

Imaging verification of the rate of PET radio-pharmaceutical uptake in acute pulmonary embolism using a fibrin avid PET agent and MRI/MRA . We expect that there will f clot labeled by PET agent in the lung. This is a pilot study to determine the utility of this animal model.
